Anger over Spanish govt's move to restrict abortion rights

In this edition of the show: there's fury in Spain as the government moves to roll back abortion rights. Opposition parties and women's groups say it will set back women's rights to the dark days of General Franco's dictatorship. Also, we take a look at the women who made their mark in 2013. Finally, we meet not a Top Gun but a "Top Gunette," the first female pilot of the French Rafale fighter jet.

Prepared by Kate Rousseau, Stéphane Bernstein and Anthony Saint-Léger.
